Why Do We Need To Clean Up Eyelash Extensions Regularly?

Anyone who’s tried Eyelash Extensions knows just how eye-opening and glamorous they can be. And if you haven't tried them yet, take it from us: They are simply life changing. Not only do they make your eyes all the more fluttery, but they also mitigate the need for mascara, which could essentially cut the time it takes you to apply your makeup in half—every single day. The only problem is that they come with an expiration date. Like the saying goes, all good things must come to an end—and Lash Extensions, unfortunately, are not exempt. For this reason, it’s important to understand just how long eyelash extensions will last once you have them applied.

Keep scrolling to find out how long you can expect different types of eyelash extensions to last to get the most out of their wear.

There are generally three types of eyelash extensions: mink, silk, and synthetic. Each of these options has a typical life span of approximately six to eight weeks, but the life you get out of your extensions is mostly dependent on your own lash cycle. Because each extension is individually attached to a single lash, it will also naturally fall out when your real lash sheds. The normal life cycle of a natural lash can be as short as two weeks and as long as eight weeks.

Since your lashes are at different stages in their growth cycle at any given time, your extensions won't all fall out at once, and you might find that gaps start to appear a few weeks after having the extensions put in. This situation is typically rectified during a fill-in treatment, where lashes are reapplied to sparse areas to extend the general wear of your new lashes. The life span of your lashes will also depend on how well you care for them after application—and, luckily, there are plenty of things you can do at home to help preserve your look.

So Why Do We Need To Clean Up Eyelash Extensions Regularly?

  1. We are exposed to the wind and the sun every day, makeup residues, and our own oil secretion, especially in summer, the roots of eyelashes are easy to breed bacteria.
  2. The naked eye cannot directly see some dirty things, and no matter how good the glue is, it cannot stick the eyelashes with dirty things firmly, but it will increase the burden on the eyelashes.
  3. Unloading and re-grafting can clean our own real eyelashes very well.

Therefore, we should no longer blindly pursue grafted eyelashes that will not fall off for two or three months. Eyelashes themselves also have a growth cycle, and health and safety are what we should pursue.
